Aug. 10, 2009 -- Rosetta Genomics, Ltd., the leading developer of microRNA-based molecular diagnostics, and Warnex Medical Laboratories announced today they have signed an exclusive distribution agreement in Canada for three currently available medical diagnostic tests, one of which is the first single test designed to differentiate mesothelioma from other carcinomas in the lung.
Under the terms of the agreement, Warnex will market Rosetta Genomics’ miRview™ tests. The agreement calls for samples to be sent from Canada to Rosetta Genomics’ Philadelphia-based CLIA-certified laboratory for analysis.
“We are excited to have a well established molecular diagnostic laboratory such as Warnex as our distribution partner in Canada," said Rosetta’s chief commercialization officer. “Canada is an important market, and this agreement is a significant step as we expand the market for our products in North America.

Currently, there is no single diagnostic test that is entirely conclusive for this differentiation.
